Our History

The ARC is owned and operated by the Association of Free Lutheran Congregations (AFLC). The Association Retreat Center (ARC) operated as a United States Air Force Radar Base and was purchased by the AFLC in 1979. We have operated as a Christian retreat center and Bible Camp since that time. The ARC is utilized by scholastic groups, as well as a variety of Christian youth and adult groups.

Mission Statement

The ARC seeks to glorify God by partnering with the local congregation to lift up, change and strengthen individuals by presenting the gospel of Jesus Christ, winning people to Christ, and building individual faith to further equip them for their ministry.

The ARC also seeks to provide a positive, safe, enriching environment for leadership building, project completion and fellowship where guests can develop character and positive life skills.


The ARC is a holy sanctuary; A place of refuge for restoration, energizing and equipping individuals to serve God. A place where people can play, study and grow spiritually, physically, mentally, emotionally and socially. All tended to by competent, responsive, loving, God honoring staff.

Thanks for visiting and we look forward to serving you.
